Tanjung Aan Beach Lombok – A MUST Visit

Tanjung Aan Beach Lombok – A MUST Visit

Before we headed to Lombok, Tanjung Aan Beach was right at the top of our recommendations. The Kuta beach is covered in pristine sand and, with it’s iconic swings dotted around the bay, it was a place we had to visit. Now we can firmly say Tanjung Aan Lombok has to be one of the best beaches on the island.

How To Get To Tanjung Aan Beach Lombok

Tanjung Aan Beach is around a 15 minute drive from Kuta, the main tourist area in Lombok. 

We rented scooters for 50,000 IDR a day and chose to explore the south of Lombok on two wheels. 

Drivers are available throughout town to rent daily if you’re not confident on scooters and Tanjung Aan is easy to find using the google map below.

Our Day At Tanjung Aan Lombok

We headed to Tanjung Aan Beach as soon as we arrived in Lombok. We’d heard from a lot of people that it was the most popular beach in Kuta and the crystal white sand and turquoise waters didn’t disappoint. 

As soon as we arrived we could see the colours for miles and couldn’t wait to get in the waters. It was literally paradise compared to the black sand beaches in Canggu we’d been used to.

The beach has many swings for that perfect Instagram snap, as well as a row of local restaurants (warungs) and bamboo loungers.

We paid 25,000 for a Mie Goreng (vegetable noodles) which included beach chairs for the day. We’re not sure if you usually have to pay for these but the swing was also free.

Overall the picturesque beach was a dream intro into our Lombok experience. We spent the day kicking back and chilling in paradise with a few breaks in between to dive in the waters to refresh before heading over to Batu Payung for sunset.
